Can't get Windows Update to run
Whenever I try to run Windows Update I get:


Files required to use Windows Update are no longer registered or installed
on your computer. To continue:

Register or reinstall the files for me now (Recommended)
Let me read about more steps that might be required to solve the problem


I have already reregistered the Windows Update files, reinstalled the
Windows Update agents (I tried both 2 and 3). It keeps looping back to the
files not being registered or installed.

Glad to see you found your way here, from general, safe and sound - so I
will reply to you here.
You don't say which set of updates - this months or are you playing catch-up
having not updated for a while - you say 'whenever' so it sounds as if you
have been trying for a while, as opposed to saying 'when I tried to get this
months updates'
I cannot go back as far as Jan/Feb this year but I am sure I read a similar
prob had been caused by HP printers.
However, there are quite a few to read in Google - see below
